I have lived in Iowa for the most part of my life. It was not until just a couple years ago that I finally what is sometimes deemed the ‘Eight Wonder of the World’-The Grotto of the Redemption in West Bend. The Grotto contains the largest collection of stones in any one place and took mainly two men 52 years of hard manual labor to achieve.
I was impressed by the immense peace and beauty of this place. The pictures I am sharing don’t compare to seeing this in person-which is something I highly recommend!
